Work to build a third hotel at Salalah Beach, an integrated tourism complex (ITC) in Oman, will start before the end of the year, the CEO of the firm behind the development said.

In March Salalah Beach opened its second hotel, a Rotana, to add to the boutique hotel located in the marina town.

The15.6km2 tourist destination is being developed by Muriya, a joint venture of Orascom Development Holding and Omran, the Oman government’s tourism development arm. 

CEO Hamza Selim told CW that planning was under way to populate the site with more facilities this year.

He said: "In terms of what we have planned for the year, before the end of 2014 we are expecting to have more than 15 shops to open around the marina town, and commence construction of our third hotel."

In August last year, Muriya’s senior director, design and engineering, Christa Diener, said the next hotel to be built once the Rotana was finished would be a Movenpick

When complete Salalah Beach will feature an array of retail and restaurant facilities, alongside two Peter Harradine-designed PGA golf courses, a 200 berth inland marina with dockside restaurants and cafes, two boutique hotels and a selection of resorts, including Club Med, Movenpick, and Rotana.
